A creche principal in Pongola, KwaZulu-Natal, was tortured with burning plastic during an attack on a farm.

A creche principal in Pongola, KwaZulu-Natal, was tortured with burning plastic during an attack on a farm, Beeld newspaper reported on Tuesday.

According to a neighbour, four robbers descended on Armand and Doulina Slabbert's farm at around 2pm on Saturday.

Armand runs a nursery and Doulina the creche on the property.

Their neighbour Jess Strumpfer said on Monday the robbers grabbed Doulina and took her inside the house where Armand was showering.

They tied up Armand's disabled brother and took the couple to their bedroom.

They took money and firearms from the safe.

"They tied Doulina up, set plastic on fire and let it drip on her stomach," said Strumpfer.

This was apparently to force Armand to say where their valuables were kept.

They took the keys to two bakkies but Armand managed to free himself and confront them, forcing them to leave without the bakkies.

Doulina was treated in hospital and later discharged.

The Slabberts were not available at the time of going to press.

Provincial police spokesman Colonel Jay Naicker said no arrest had yet been made.
